Hey!

Is there anybody up for a swiss all card tournament? I don't know about you, but I'm a bit sick of the league system we have.
The only problem would be that the participants'd have to be trustable. Nobody wants to get kicked out because their opponent was a week not online.

Details can be cleared later, I just want to test the waters.

Details:
When everybody joined and the format is clear, I'll post the pairings here.
Then everybody gets max. a week (or another realistic deadline) to play their game and shot me a pm (both players!!) with the results.
When everybody did that (or when time runs out) next pairings will be posted here and so on until one winner is there.

So I add a list with interested people/participants
If you want to be added or removed just post it
We need at least 8

-HumanHydra (December)
-Phallen
-Sibiatu (Movie)
-(DarthMaeglin)(later, maybe)
-mathes (FotR-Block, Movie; No Swiss)
-hight91 (FotR, TTT)

Gemp can already do swiss My Card tournaments on demand if enough people join, and you probably have enough gold to buy whatever deck you want. I'm interested, but I can't commit. It's a good idea to plan on here to get everybody on at the same time, though.

Oh, Phallen you're right, I know that but I'm not sure how exactly these works.
 They state like Daily Rohan Movie Tournament (and similar) and some dates but I'm sure you could arrange some.

What I want is to play a completely normal tournament.

But even if they would be back introduced, I think it would be good to do organize them independent from the Gemp tournament, because, as Hydra stated, many people do not have the time to do them in one day or whatever time Gemp gives the players.

My thoughts were to make people join here, give the rounds known here and then every player has a week (or similar) to play their game on Gemp and pm me the results. Then I could give the pairings and so on.

If you haven't already, maybe you should mention it in the Gemp chat. Despite the recent bustle, I'm sure most players still don't check these forums.

So I thought we'd collect people first and then discuss which format. But if this way to host a tournament, I'm sure more will come.
One could go even bigger but thats for the future.

I'll make a list with interested people, we need at least 8 (that'd be 3 rounds) but more are possible (and welcome) too!

Unfortunately my current job can make me unavailable for weeks at a time on short notice. I'm hoping to change that, and once I do I would be interested in participating in something like this.
I like the sound of bringing the forums and the playrooms together more and I think people seeing chatter over something structured like this could be a great way to draw interest over here.

Hey,

even though I see the swiss format as the "king of the formats" for LOTR it works even worse than for other C/TCG.

I have organized couple tournaments and getting people to play their game is something that turns very challenging very often.

What I would recommend is to kick off with double elimination tournament, its much easier to organize and the tournament flows much better.

What is 'double Elimination'? Just plain single elimination or being beaten twice or what? Never heard of that before.
And I'd say it depends on what the others want once we hit 8 players. And I'm sure it should be possible to make the time limit, so everybody gets a chance to play their game.
Are you up for a tournament?

Double elimination is very simple.

Its like the usual tournament spider but you have two brackets - you have the winners bracket (up) and losers bracket (down).

If you lose a game in the winners' bracket, you fall down to losers bracket.

If you lose a game in the losers' bracket, you are out of the tournament.

The final stage is a little bit confusing as it is the winner of the winners' bracket against the winner of losers' bracket.

As the winner already lost once, he would have to win twice in the row to win the whole tournament.

It's a pretty good format as everybody plays at least 2 games so its not as harsh as single elim tournament and doesn't drag too long as swiss tournaments tend to.

Ok, thank you! Sounds ...interesting. Still, I'd prefer a system I know but as I said normally everything is ok with me as long as we get things going. But first of we'd need some more people, mathes would you be up for a try?

Well I play only FOTR and Movie and the format is not yet decided, right?

I would consider to join but honestly I have some experience with online tournaments and if you would go with the swiss I will most likely pass as I have seen and played too many swiss tournaments that stuck somewhere in the middle with half people played around 3/4 of the games and some people still with 0-1 games played

Ok, I'll add you then but keep in mind you'll play only Elimination Tournaments. But I really hope we could prove you wrong and that my system works so you can play next one Tongue

I, for one, have no experience with online tournaments whatsoever (except the leagues in Gemp). If it is gonna be FotR or TTT block, I am in, I might consider RotK but I do not know that block very much. Later sets, I have never played.

What I was always hoping to try are the tournaments in the Gemp just to see it work for once. I am ok with any format I guess and I could play mostly afternoon times on weekdays and can be flexible on the weekends.

Hey thank you for the response! I'll add you then. You know what I'l do then? I think I' just create another thread for the gemp tournaments. The problem with them is, that you play the whole tournament immidiently, so everybdy has t be online at the same time and on that thread we can speak up the time, k?

Ok, so I figured out to try this sort of tournament to get people trying it. So whats about starting a Swiss-tournament next week with minimum 4 players?
Format will probably either be Fellowship or Movie, depending on what you want to play.

Rules are simple, sign up by leaving a post either here or on Gemp then I will post the pairings here.
You and your opponent have a week time to play your game. Both of you send me a pm with the result as well as a replay. At the end of the week or when everybody played their game, everybody who didn't play his/her game gets a loss.
Then I will announce the standings and the new pairings here again until only one undefeated player is left.

Above is to be discussed.

Ok then give it a try:

Participants (hope your all onto it if not sign out):

Wyrden333
Phallen
HumanHydra
Hight91

Format: Fellowship Block
(sorry Sibiatu, maybe Movie Block later)

You know how it works.

Pairings, first Round:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hight91 (00 00 00) vs. Phallen (00 00 00)

Wyrden333 (00 00 00) vs. HumanHydra (00 00 00)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Pairings are completly random)

Time for now: Saturday 29th of December, 24:00 (Gemp server time)

Of course it's a small round but maybe we can go bigger in the future

You only can play on Wednesdays, can't you? Whats about next week weekend would that be possible?
 If not I'd say infinite time until everybody played since we're only 4 and it's our first try.

I'm excited! Wyrden, did you want to arrange a time to play our game Wednesday or thereafter? You're GMT +1 and I'm -5 (Ontario), so I'm guessing some time in your evening and my afternoon would be best. I'm free afternoons right now because I'm on school break.

So Hight if you see this: We need you!!!!

For the others: as long as Hight is disappeared is the question whether we wait for him and play this tournament out, or just start a new one (maybe movie block this time).

I don't now about the others and it has been some time, but if you think you can do something you could try it.

And @Sibiatu if you're into it we could try movie block this time.
